PREFACE. 



LiTEBABT labor and the wish to preserve historical facts, 
being almost a passion with me, have been the moving causes 
for the production of this book. A few years since, while 
gathering data relating to an old New England family, it 
was necessary to ascertain the pedigree of her emigrating an- 
cestor to the New World, of a female member of the Norris 
lineage, who had become connected with it by marriage. This 
required so much research that before its accomplishment, I 
gleaned genealogical and historical matter . of considerable value 
relating to her direct line, and also to collateral branches of 
the Norris family. This was obtained from wills, the adminis- 
trations of estates, from deeds, the records of towns and 
churches, from tombstones, from family records, and from in- 
formation embraced in a very extensive correspondence with 
members of the Norris family, and from published records. 

Subsequently, I decided, in order to preserve facts already 
obtained, to make a general history of the Norris family. 
Having this definite plan before me, my investigations and 
labors were renewed, and have continued till the present, and 
the result, — the preservation of the annals of another New 
England family, — is now given to the Norrises and to the 
general public. 

Genealogical works are never remunerative, and are seldom 
prepared, except by interested persons, as "a labor of love," 



8 PREFACE. 

or by others, in whom the historical trend is so powerful 
that they can hardly fail to work, write, and prepare them. 
I have made a large expenditure of time, labor, and money, 
and this book is as fall in information and as attractive in 
form, as was possible. I assumed the entire expense of the 
undertaking. My chief recompense is in the pleasure of this 
book's preparation, the knowledge that history is preserved, 
and the thought that others may experience delight in its 
perusal and possession. 

A well prepared book of genealogy and biographies is of 
great value because of its relation to local and general history, 
and it preserves a vast amount of information which otherwise 
would be lost. Lands and homes are located and described, 
the manners of life of bygone generations are delineated, and 
they who have long been sleeping are, by the published 
records of their lives, made familiar acquaintances of the' 
present generation. The life-history, with the toils, struggles, 
sacrifices of our predecessors is made known to those of the 
present, for their benefit and loyal appreciation. The fathers 
and mothers of the long ago, live again in their descendants. 

My task is over. They who have kindly furnished me 
information and records of themselves or others, have my 
sincere thanks. They who from any cause neglected my oft 
repeated and urgent request to impart desired knowledge, may, 
when too late, regret their indifference. 

I experienced considerable dificulty in securing a sufiicient 
number of subscribers in the Norris family to liquidate the 
expense of publication, not to mention the expense of prepara- 
tion, of this book. At this critical juncture Hon. Lyman 
Decatur Norris, of Grand Rapids, Mich., very wisely and 
generously aided in a substantial manner, and made sure the 
publication of this work. To him I, with every member of 
the Norris Family, am greatly indebted for his generosity and 
aid in the preservation of this family history. 



PREFACE. 9 

In this book errors will appear, but of the materials for- 
warded me, the best possible use has been made. 

They who have inserted engravings of themselves, or others, 
have my thanks. 

Trusting that this history will meet the reasonable expecta- 
tions of the general public, and the far scattered members of 
this early New England family, it is committed to them with 
the hope that the recorded lives of those found within its 
pages may not speedily pass from their memories.

INTRODUCTION. 



THE FAMILY AND NAME OP NORRIS. 

Thb early patronymic was Norrey and Norreys, through 
which the modern name shines as clearly as the sun does 
through thin and broken clouds. The family is an an- 
cient one in England. For many centuries it has flourished 
in Sutton and Lancashire. In A. D. 1311, Sir Henry Norreys, 
by marriage with Joan, daughter of Sir Henry Molyneux, 
acquired the Manor of Speke, in Lancashire, England. 

William Norreys, of Sutton, was descended from Alain Nor- 
reys, who in a remote time dwelt on the same estate. From 
him are descended the celebrated families of the name of 
Norris in Speke, Lancaster, and Eyecote, in the County of 
Berkshire. 

Thomas Norreys^ of Speke, was father of Nicholas Norreys', 
Esq., of Tarleton, who was succeeded by a son, Nicholas Nor- 
reys*, of Tarleton. A son of the latter, Nicholas Norreys*, 
of the same place, was followed in the possession of his 
name, by his son, Nicholas Norreys*, of Middleworth, County 
of Lancaster, whose son, Nicholas Norreys^ of Middleworth, 
born in 1633, was succeeded by his son, Henry Norri^^. It 
will be noticed here the name changes to the form generally 
used in more modern times. It is also interesting to observe 
that the Christian name Nicholas^ which was borne by the 
heads of five successive generations of this family name, is 



12 INTRODUCTION. 

the same as carried by the early emigrant and settler, Nicholas 
Norris, who was a resident of New Hampshire in 1663. 

After the change in the orthography of the name to Nor- 
riS) as previously stated, it was so written by many of the 
descendents of Henry Norris, for many generations, and then 
by some of them, in recent times, was again altered to 
the original form. 

Many of this blood have been distinguished, in times past, 
and numerous members bear the name with high honor at the 
present. Sir Henry Norris, of Ryecote, was granted a peer- 
age in the reign of Queen Elizabeth. Early, some of the 
English Norrises settled in Ireland ; one branch lived in 
Armagh, and claim descent from Sir Henry of Ryecote, 
Berkshire. Among the noted members of the Armagh 
family, was Sir William Norris, who died in 1859. He was 
once Chief Justice of Ceylon, India, and his father was Pres- 
ident of the College of Surgeons in London. A son of Sir 
William Norris, is W. E. Norris, of Underbank, Torquay, 
England, an author of high repute. 

NORRISES EARLY IN AMERICA. 

In the records in the City Hall at Leyden, Holland, is the 
recorded fact, that Mary Norris, a girl of Newbury, England, 
was married to Isaac AUerton, Nov. 11, 1611. He was of 
London, England, and they were of that Pilgrim Colony who 
located in Leyden. She came as a passenger in the May- 
flower^ to Plymouth, Mass., in 1620. 

On June 10, 1635 Jo: Norris was one of those to be 
transported "to the Bormoodoes or Somer Islands imbarqued 
in the True love de London." 

Rev. Edward Norris, between whom and Nicholas Norris, 
of New Hampshire, there is no known connection. The for- 
mer was a Non-Conformist minister. He was born in Eng- 
land in 1579; resided at Tedbury and at Horseigh, Glouces- 



INTRODUCTIOSr. IS 

tershire, and was a great deal in Bristol. He was an author 
of considerable repute, a teacher of standing, and a preacher. 
Had works published in London in 1636 and 1638. He 
came to America, joined the church in Boston, Mass., July 
21, 1639; was in Salem, Mass., in 1640. He married Eleanor 

, and died in Salem, Dec. 23, 1659. His son Edward 

Norris, Jr., was in Salem, Mass., in 1639, was a teacher in 
1640, and died about 1684. The Norrises of Salem, Mass., 
are largely the descendants of Rev. Edward Norris, while 
those of New Hampshire, and many in Massachusetts, are the 
descendants of Nicholas Norris, of Exeter, N. H. 

Nicholas Norris, of Exeter, N. H., was in Hampton, N. H., 
previous to Jan. 21, 1663-64; probably as early as 1654. 

Benjamin Norris came from England in 1690 and settled in 
Hartford county, Md. He had several sons, and the eldest 
was named John Norris. Two of his sons settled in Vir- 
ginia. Among Benjamin Norris's descendants is Col. Basil 
Norris, m. d., at the Occidental Hotel, San Francisco, Cal., 
He is an officer in the U. S. Army, in 1892. 

Philip Norris, of Lancashire, England, was married in 
Boston, Mass., to Mary Bennett, of that place, Dec. 12. 1707.

HISTORY OF THE NORRIS FAMILY. 



1. Nicholas Norris\ was the progenitor of this family. His prob- 
able date of birth was about 1640. By occupation he was a tailor 
and planter, and was an early resident of Hampton, N. H. The 
tradition in regard to his origin is that he was of English extrac- 
tion, being a descendant of one of the Efiglish settlers in Ireland, 
where he was born. That he was " a stowaway " in an emigrant 
ship, and arrived in America when fourteen years of age. He be- 
longed to that goodly throng who at that early day emigrated to 
New Hampshire to develop and found a successful and prosperous 
State. 

He married Sarah Coxe, 11th mo. 21st day, 1663. This is the 
first record of him in Hampton. On Sept. 29, 1666, he deeded a 
dwelling-house and three acres of planting land in Hampton to John 
Godfrey. That same year he appeared in Exeter, N. H. In 1677 
he took the oath of allegiance, desired the jurisdiction of Massachu- 
setts in 1690, and was a soldier in garrison from Aug. 3 to Aug. 31, 
1696, under Kinsley Hall. His home was near Meeting-house hill 
in Exeter Village. 

On March 8, 1720-21, ten acres of land were laid out to him by 
the town of Exeter, on the *' north side of a masteway leading from 
Col. Hilton's to Pawtuckawaye Mills," it being the southwest cor- 
ner of John Sinkler's fifty acres of land. He deeded away land 
June 10, 1721, which is the last reference to him found upon any 
record. He must have died soon after that date. 

Tradition in relation to him has about died out, but it is said that 
he was fond of athletic sports, and was an expert in the use of his 
hands. He was a resident of Exeter for fifty-seven years, perform- 
ing his duties as a friend, neighbor, citizen, and then disappeared 
from view. His descendants have become like the sands of the sea 
for multitude.

Folsom, of Exeter, N. H. He married March 4, 1692, Ruth, daughter 
of Samuel and Mary (Robey) Folsom, and granddaughter of John 
Folsom, the immigrant to Exeter.* He served as a soldier from 
Aug. 31, 1696, to Sept. 28, 1696. 

On Feb. 2, 1720-21, "for fatherljr love and affection" he deeded 
land to his children, they to come mto possession " after ye decease 
of me and my present wife, Ruth Norris." By this deed, and others, 
all of his children can be identified. No farther record of the settle- 
ment of his estate is upon the public records. The date of his death 
is unknown, but he lived for a number of years after making the 
deed of Feb. 2, 1720-21.

80. Moses Norris, Jr.* (14) [Moses^ Nicholas^]. He was bom 
in Exeter, N. H., about 1696, as he purchased land May 8, 1718. 
He saw military service, and a muster roll signed by him was 
allowed Dec. 12, 1724. On April 28, 1726, he was in a company of 
men commanded by Capt. John Oilman, and rendered five days' 
service. On Oct. 9, 1731, he purchased '*one messuage" in Not- 
tingham. There he was an innholder, and entertained the public. 

He married Lydia, daughter of James Eundlett, of Stratham, and 
a sister of Theophilus Rundlett. He dealt largely in real estate, 
lived in Nottingham until about 1745, when he bought land in 
Epping, and soon after appeared there, where he spent the remain- 
der of his life. He made his will Aug. 23, 1750, admitted to pro- 
bate court Aug 16, 1751, showing that he died between those dates. 
His wife, probably, died Jan. 23, 1795, aged 96 years. 

CHILDREN. 

31. Elizabeth Norris*. She was to receive £150 in two months after her 

father's decease. 

32. Sarah Norris*, m. Mr. Smart. She had part of land at Petuckaway 

lower mill. 

33. Ruth Norris*. She was to receive £150 in three months after her 

father's decease. 

34. James Norris* (109), b. Feb., 1728; res. Epping, N. H. He was the 

executor of his father's will. He d. Nov. 6, 1814. 

35. Nicholas Norris* (15) [Moses^, Nicholas^]. He was bom in 
Exeter, N. H., about 1698. By a deed from his father, Feb. 2, 
1720-21, he received one-half of right to stream and falls, "on which 
my sawmill at Petuckaway stands." He married, Dec. 19, 1723, 
Elizabeth, daughter of Joseph and Elizabeth Fanning, of Ports- 
mouth, N. H., and soon after moved to that city, where he spent the 
remainder of his life. He was the only one of his name taxed in 
that city until 1744, and his home was on the south side of the mill- 
dam. He was last taxed in 1761, and died before the assessment of 
taxes in 1762. Mrs. Norris was deceased before March 20, 1765. 

CHILDREN, BORN PROBABLY IN PORTSMOUTH, N. H. 

36. Moses IsTorris*, b. about 1725; res. in Portsmouth, N. H. ; called him- 

self ''laborer" in a deed March 20, 1765, when he sold all right in 
his father's estate to his brother, Jonathan Norris. He was taxed 
in 1766 and d. before taxes were assessed in 1767. No record of 
wife or family. 

37. Jonathan Norris*, b. about 1727; res. Portsmouth, N. H. On Nov. 5, 

1766, he and his brother, Joseph Norris, sold land to their brother, 
Samuel Norris. There is some confusion in regard to persons of 
this name in Portsmouth. One Jonathan Norns was ''dead" in 
1761 ; another appears upon the tax-list in 1763, and is " Gone " in 
1770. This Jonathan Norris appears to have been there in 1772, and 
then he disappears, probably died. His wife was probably the Euth 
Norris, widow of Jonathan Norris, who had her thirds set off, and 
which land was sold to Moses Norris^, a nephew of Jonathan, on 
March 5, 1811.

40. Joseph Norris* (16) [Moses^ Nicholas^]. He was bom in 
Exeter, N. H., about 1700, as he was apparently of age when his 
father deeded land and property to him and other sons, Feb. 2, 
1720-21. He was to have one-half of his father's homestead, and 
his father's house. He received one-eighth of sawmill at Petucka- 
way, now West Epping, N. H. He and his brother, Samuel Norris, 
had five acres of meadow together. His home was in what is now 
Epping, and was included in that township when it was cut off from 
Exeter in 1741. He sold land to his brother, Jonathan Norris, of 
Exeter, N. H., Dec. 3, 1735; signed a petition for the incorporation 
of Epping in 1741; was fence viewer in 1744; signed a petition 
against a bridge at Newfields in 1746; and March 5, 1747, that a 
scout of men might be sent to protect Nottingham from the enemy. 
Joseph Norris and Elizabeth, his wife, on Oct. 21, 1747, sold land to 
Josiah Ladd, which belonged to their honored father, Jeremiah 
Bean, of Exeter, deceased. On Dec. 9, 1765, he sold land to 
Nathaniel Brackett. He sold 47 acres *'to my son Joseph" Norris, 
Jr., Feb. 8, 1775 (David Norris was a witness). On Nov. 22, 1788, 
he and his wife, Joanna Norris, and his son, Joseph Norris, Jr., and 
bis wife, Rebecca Norris, sold to Daniel Til ton, of Exeter, 12 acres in

road (Jeremiah Norris was a witness). He sold land to his 
brother, Jonathan Norris, of Exeter, which the latter sold to Peter 
Oilman, April 20, 1744, "and which belonged to my father's home- 
place." Mr. Oilman married Mary Norris. He sold to Joseph 
Norris, Jr., 60 acres in Barnstead, Dec. 8, 1786, and on March 7, 
1787, he sold "to son, Joseph Norris, Jr., the homeplace where I 
now live," being 60 acres on Joseph Purrington's land (Jeremiah 
Norris, a witness). He sold to Daniel Tilton, Nov. 3, 1786, 18 acres, 
"where my son, Jeremiah Norris, now lives." 

He married Elizabeth, daughter of Jeremiah Bean, of Exeter,

tire in connection with the history of General Sullivan's Indian ex- 
pedition, 1779, published in 1887 by the State of New York. In the

turned to the abode of civilization in safety. He continued in the 
service until about July 5, 1780, when he left the service, probably

medicine, m 1872, spent a year in hospitals, and, in 1873, went 
to Bombay, India, as a physician for the American Board of 
Commissioners of Foreign Missions, and remained eight years, 
and treated about ten thousand women and children each year. 
The women were Hindoos, Mohammedans, Parsees, Jains, Por- 
tuguese, and native Christians. She visited the high and low, in 
palace and hovel, and kept open a free dispensary for those who 
were able to come to it for medicine and treatment. At one time 
a Hindoo princess and her household, including her body guard 
of two hundred Arabs, temporarily sojourned in an unhealthy 
portion of Bombay, and were down with the fever, and were Dr. 
Norris' patients. She was invited by Sir Salar Jung, prime min- 
ister of Hyderabad, and acting ruler, to take charge of a disj^n- 
sary in the city of Hyderabad, and to visit the Mohammedan 
women in the Zenanas also, at a large salary. Other flattering 
offers were made to her, but to have accepted them would have 
closed the dispensarv in Bombay, and left thousands of persons 
without medical relief. To this day, messages come yearly to 
the ^^ Doctor Madam Sahib," from those women in India, entreat- 
ing her to come back and heal their diseases. Dr. Norris is now 
a resident of Boston, Mass.

973. Moses Norris, Jr.* (425) [Moses^ Moses*, James*, Moses^ 
Nicholas^]. Hon. Moses Norris was born in Pittsfield, N. H., Sept. 
16, 1799, and was fifty-five years of age at the time of his decease. 
He graduated at Dartmouth College in 1828, with a high reputa- 
tion for scholarship. He studied law and was admitted to the bar 
in 1882, and commenced the practice of his profession in Barnstead, 
N. H. In the course of two or three years he changed his residence 
to his native town of Pittsfield, which was his home till 1849, when 
he removed to the active and stirring young city of Manchester, 
which was his home at the time of his decease. 

His political career commenced in 1837, when he was chosen to 
represent Pittsfield in the legislature. From that time until his 
death he was almost continually in the public service. He repre- 
sented Pittsfield in the House in 1837, '38, '39, '40, and was elected 
speaker in the latter year. He was a member of the governor's 
council in 1841, was again a representative from Pittsfield in 1842, 
and was elected to congress by the democracy in 1843, re-elected in 
1845, again represented Pittsfield in the legislature in 1847, and was 
elected speaker, was re-elected representative in 1848, and in that 
year was chosen United States senator, to serve for six years from 
the 4th of March, 1849. He took a strong part and an active in- 
terest in the legislation of his native state, and in the national con- 
gress. He was a strong partisan. His native vigor of intellect, 
improved by study and reflection, never failed to show his conserv- 
ative action. On life' he looked with careful eyes, and his judgment 
was ripened by large and varied experience. He possessed much 
firmness of purpose, and his speeches in congress upon the great 
and exciting questions which then agitated the public mind at- 
tracted much attention.

hearts of his acquaintances. While a member of the United States 
senate, he died of disease of the heart, at Washington, D. C, Jan.

ant. He resided in Barnstead, and from the wound received in the 
service of his country he never recovered, and died of consumption 
July 18, 1834. 

Mrs. Norris was of the best type of American womanhood. At 
the age of thirty-six years she was left a widow in destitute circum- 
stances. The long illness of her husband, and two unfortunate 
suits at law which were undecided at his death, used up their slen- 
der income, so that she was left with but seventy dollars in money 
and a small amount of household furniture, as the worldly sub- 
stance for the maintenance of herself and her son, John G. Sinclair, 
then eight years of age. To that boy and the service of her God 
she devoted the remainder of her life. With her needle she earned 
their daily bread, and kept her son at school. A devoted Christian, 
with an unblemished life, she became a member of the Congregar 
tional church at Barnstead, N. H. On her removal to Bethlehem, 
N. H., she united with the Methodist Episcopal church, of which she 
was a member at her death, February, 1880. She was 81 years of 
age at the time of her death.

1097. Jewett Norris* (519) [Benjamin*, Benjamin*, Benjamin', 
Jonathan^, Nicholas^]. Hon. Jewett Norris was born in Dorches- 
ter, Grafton cc, N. il., June 1, 1809. The first fifteen years of 
bis life were spent upon the rough, uneven acres of the homestead 
farm. His advantages for education were meagre, being only such 
as the district school afforded, and which he attended some three 
months in the year until his fourteenth year. 

After a year or two spent in a country store he went forth into 
the world to win bis way and make his fortune. Three years were 
spent in Boston, Mass., and vicinity, then he removed to the city of 
New York, where seven years were spent in a small retail business, 
when failing health compelled him to seek employment in the open 
air. Another New Hampshire boy had said "Go West, young 
man." Young Norris heeded the admonition, crossed the Missis- 
sippi river in 1835, and, before the land was surveyed, secured land 
under the pre-emption laws then existing, and located near where 
the city of Trenton, Grundy co.. Mo., now stands. There be 
built a log cabin, opened up a farm, and for thirty-five years was ac- 
tively engaged in farming, in stock raising, and a few years as a 
country merchant. 

He participated in the organization of his new county, acting as 
county judge and magistrate. For eight years he served as senator 



JEWETT NORRIS«; SIXTH GENERATION. 117 

in the senate of Missouri. He was a strong Unionist, and intro- 
duced some war resolutions, in support of which he made a bold, 
vigorous, and able speech in the senate in March 19, 1863, taking ad- 
vanced ground for the prosecution of the war, the punishment of 
traitors, and abolition of slavery. 

He took an active part in the organizing and arming of the loyal- 
ists in Missouri, to protect their property and lives from the infest- 
ing bands of guerillas who troubled them during the entire war. 
He served as captain, as post quartermaster at Chillicothe, Mo., 
where troops were organized and fitted out for the Union army, and 
afterwards as lieutenant-colonel of enrolled Missouri militia for 
service at home. It was valuable service he rendered the Union 
cause. 

His family had suffered greatly by sickness, and in 1870, he 
sought a more healthy locality, and removed to St. Paul, Minn., 
which is now (1891) his home. He has retired from active business 
or political life, but he has some farming interests of which he is es- 
pecially fond. 

He cannot forget his old home and old friends in Missouri, where 
thirty-five years of his active life were passed. It was there he won 
his successes ; it was there his children were bom, and there five 
of them lie buried by the side of the grave of their mother. In the 
winter of 1890, as a testimonial of his high regard, he left fifty 
thousand dollars to the city of Trenton, Grundy co., Mo., to estab- 
lish a free public library and reading room. He married, Novem- 
ber, 1837, Sarah Evans, daughter of George and Jane Campbell 
(Thompson) Peery, who was bom in Tazewell co., Va., July 20, 1813. 
She died June 17, 1858.

dent of Peacham, Vt. 

He early left the parental roof, going to the Genesee country 
as a land surveyor, and was located in Covington, Wyoming co., 
N. Y., sometime previous to 1819, where he engaged m business. 
He was in trade, and owned an ashery, for making pot- and pearlash,

He married, Jan. 13, 1820, Eoccena B., daughter of James and

dows, an open fireplace, and a crane with hooks for hanging kettles.

stores. In 1827 he went to Michigan, selected his home, and se- 
cured a water power at Ypsilanti; moved his family there June

ance Society, which met at Ann Arbor, Mich. In 1844 he owned

months of feebleness and great suffering, at Ypsilanti, Mich., March 
6, 1862, aged 66 vrs. 18 days. 

Mrs. Norris bore this and all sufferings and bereavements 
with a woman's fortitude, and the faith of a Christian. She was a 
person of rare strength, faculty, and purity of character; was fond 
of reading from her youth, and was actively interested in founding 
a ladies' library association in her city; was connected for over 
twenty years as a worker with the Ladies' Home Association, of which 
she was president for sixteen years. This record of service for the 
unfortunate and the poor, is remembered of her. She passed to her 
rest on Oct. 27, 1876, and was buried in the beautiful Highland 
cemetery, from one of whose hills she had obtained her first glimpse 
of Ypsilanti, nearly fifty years before.*

This life of mortal breath 
Is but the suburb of a life Elysian, 
Whose portal we call death."

a distant relative, as partner. Mr. Norris is a democrat in politics 
and has filled many prominent positions. He was secretary of the 
democratic state committee, a member of the New Hampshire house 
of representatives in 1877, and a member of the judiciary committee. 
He was re-elected in 1878, and was the democratic candidate for 
speaker in the latter year, and won a high reputation as a speaker 
and leader. His mental resources are large, with perfect self-con- 
trol, and he is seldom taken by surprise by his political opponents.

the youngest nominee for that position since the nomination of Frank- 
lin Fierce. Mr. Norris was then less than thirty years of age. He 
made an active canvass of the district, but failed of an election, 
although he ran ahead of his ticket.

member of the law firm of Norris & Foster. He always had a fond- 
ness for newspaper work and did considerable when studying his 
profession. Ele did more work in this line in Manchester, as a spe- 
cial writer, and finally joined the staff of the Manchester Union as 
leading editorial writer, a position which he held till June 1, 1891, 
when he became editor of a strong republican journal, the Boston

JOHN 6. SINCLAIR?; SEVENTH GENERATION. 158 

was ever true to ber ideas of right, was a faithful wife and mother, 
a helping and sympathizing friend. She was a member of the Meth- 
odist church, and died in Bethlehem, N. H., Feb. 10, 1872. Mr. Sin- 
clair married, 2d, July 10, 1874, Mrs. Mary Elizabeth (Pierce) Blan- 
din widow of Willard A. Blandin, and daughter of John and Rebecca 
(Cushman) Pierce, of Bethlehem, N. H. She was born in that place 
April 9, 1887. She was a member of the Orthodox Congregational 
church in Bethlehem, N. H., and upon her removal to Orlando, Fla., 
her church relations were transferred to the church in that place. 
She is an earnest worker in the church, and for charitable objects. 

Hon. John 6. Sinclair was an industrious student, a bright and 
successful scholar. Nature gave him a strong and muscular frame, 
and as his health was robust he possessed much animal spirit, and 
was a great lover of athletic sports, and was full of wit. But life's 
duties pressed early upon him, and he entered, when 18 years of age, 
the employ of Webster & Peavey, merchants, in Landaff, and re- 
mained six years. He prepared for college at the academy at New- 
bury, Vt. Entered business life in Manchester, N. H., then in Law- 
rence, Mass., and in 1847 located in Bethlehem, as owner of a coun- 
try store, and a manufacturer of starch, and soon won the confidence 
of his townsmen, and entered political life; was representative in 
1852, '58,. '54, '55, '62, '68, '76, '77, '78, and was a member of the con- 
stitutional convention. In 1878, while a resident of Littleton, he rep- 
resented that town in the House. In 1858 and '59 he was a member 
of the state senate. His long and active legislative career had some 
interesting and brilliant epis6des, and he was one of the most daring, 
brave, and brilliant leaders of the democracy in the state. 

In 1866 he was the democratic candidate for governor, but failed 
of an election. In 1867 he was a gai n standard bearer of his party, 
and issued his challenge to Gen. Walter Harriman, the republican 
candidate, to a joint public discussion. It was accepted, and then 
ensued one of tne most interesting and exciting campaigns in the 
state. Both were fine political orators, and great throngs of people 
attended each meeting. Their speeches attracted much attention in 
and out of the state, and many editorials in the leading journals criti- 
cised the arguments of the intellectual athletes. The contest was 
sharp and the democracy was again defeated. In 1868 he was chair- 
man of the New Hampshire delegation to the national democratic 
convention. His long public career as a citizen of New Hampshire 
drew to a close in 1879, when he left his home among the granite 
hills, and established a new home in the sunny south, in Orlando, 
Orange co., Fla. There he has founded a large and lucrative real 
estate business, and is engaged in other enterprises. He is still vig- 
orous in mind and body. His intellect is unclouded and his tongue 
has not forgot its cunning.

ALBERT LANE NORRIS?; SEVENTH QENERATION. 167 

1869 and ^70, he was in Europe, and studied his profession at Ber- 
lin and Vienna, under the most noted professors, and at Edinburgh, 
under the most celebrated teachers and masters, including such emi- 
nent men as Sir James Simpson, J. Hughes Bennett, and others. He 
visited the leading hospitals in central Europe, for observation and 
study. After about one year's absence be resumed his practice in 
Cambridge. On May 29, 1878, he married Clara £., daughter of Dr. 
John L. and Dora rrescott (Rundlett) Perley, of Laconia, N. H., 
and with his wife immediately took his second European journey, 
visiting familiar scenes, traveling over the usual routes of visitors, 
and spending considerable time m medical study under noted pro- 
fessors. On returning to this country he resumed the practice of his 
profession at Cambridge. 

His theme for his graduation thesis at Harvard (1865) << Diaph- 
ragmatic Hernia," was suggested by the care of a sergeant in a New 
York regiment that suffered death a few days after the springing of 
the Bumside mine, July 30, 1864, in front of Petersburgh, v a., 
which case came under his professional care. His contributions 
to medical literature have been quite considerable, and have ap- 
peared in medical journals. They are of value and are monuments 
of his love for, ana zeal in his profession. 

He is a member of various societies, among them being the Mas- 
sachusetts Medical Society, American Medical Association, Boston 
Society of Medical Improvement, Boston Genealogical Society, Cam- 
bridge Medical Improvement Society. In 1890 he was a delegate 
to the tenth International Medical Congress, at Berlin, and to the 
British Medical Association, the same year, when, with his wife 
and son, Albert Norris, he made his third European journey, which 
included the usual popular resorts and routes and countries, and 
again returned to Cambridge. 

He is a member of the Masonic order, of the Independent Order of 
Odd Fellows, the Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United 
States, Commandery of the State of Massachusetts, the Grand Army 
of the Republic, being an active worker. The National encamp- 
ments at I^ortland, Me., San Francisco, Cal., and St. Louis, Mo., 
were attended by him. He is a member of other orders and associ- 
ations of an educational and literary nature. The degree of A. M. 
has been conferred upon him. He is deserving of great credit for 
the tireless devotion, love, and care he has from boyhood, or for 
thirty years, shown his invalid mother, who was without resources, 
and who still lives, at the age of 81 years. Dr. Korris has a large 
practice, is learned in his profession, genial and affable in manners, 
quick to act, resourceful, and deservedly popular among a large circle 
of acquaintances. Resides 674 Main street, Cambridge, Mass.

ill, and died at Elmira, N. Y., Dec. 26, 1864, leaving his home full 
of sorrow. Mrs. FoUett took an active interest in the benevolent 
enterprises of the city of her home. She was vice-president or di- 
rector of the Home Association, which cared for the poor and needy; 
was also vice-president of the Detroit Home for the Friendless, and 
was president of the Ypsilanti Ladies' Library Association. Its influ- 
ence upon the mental growth and culture of the city was very great. 

The last four years of Mrs. FoUett's life were clouded by many 
severe illnesses, and much intense bodUy suffering. During the last 
two years her sufferings had been so acute and frequent, that she 
often longed inexpressibly for the blessed rest of heaven, but her 
wonderful vitality seemed proof against the fiercest shocks of dis- 
ease. More than once did her dear ones think, sorrowfully, that the 
end was very near, yet she would be given back to them from the 
very arms of death. 

Her last Ulness was one of great physical suffering, but she had 
again ralUed wonderfully, and at her own request, her children had 
aU but one, the youngest, left her and gone back to their duties. In 
a few days she was seized with a congestive chill, and passed away 
from earth Sept. 10, 1884. The weary, pain-racked body was laid 
to rest beside that of the husband of her youth, in beautiful " High- 
land Cemetery," which now crowns the hill that overlooks the val- 
ley of the Huron, and where in the month of June, 1828, she and 
her mother caught the first glimpse of the home they afterwards 
came to know and love, for almost half a century. For her is the 
blissful life of that heaven for which an earnest Christian character, 
a life of charity and self-forgetfulness, of love to God and her 
neighbor, had made her ready.*

1659. L3rman Decatur Norris' (1165) [Mark®, Benjamin^ David*, 
Benjamin*, Jonathan^, Nicholas^]. Hon. L. D. Norris was born at 
Covington, Wyoming (then Genesee) co., N. Y., May 4, 1823; mar- 
ried Lucy Alsop, daughter of Gen. Chauncey Whittlesey, of Middle- 
town, Conn., Nov. 22, 1854. He is a lawyer. Besides in Grand 
Rapids, Mich. 

In 1841 Mr. Norris entered Michigan University, as its first 
alumnus, where he remained two years and nine months, then en- 
tered and graduated at Yale College, in class of 1845; is also an 
alumnus of Michigan University, by ad eundem degree, 1869. 
The calendar of '91-'92 shows 2692 students. He studied law at 
Detroit, Mich., and was admitted to the bar there in 1847, and in 
1848 commenced the practice of law in St. Louis, Mo. In 1850 
he went to Europe upon professional business, where he spent 
the greater part of 1851. He devoted a portion of this time in 
Heidelburg, to the study of civil law. When but five years at 
the bar, he was retained on the "Dred Scott Case," which when 
carried to the supreme court of the United States, became so 
famous for the far-reaching force of its decision. 

He was the editor and half owner, for about a year, of the St. 
Louis Daily Times, While editor he gave an able editorial on the 
public and congressional life, record, and speeches of Franklin Pierce, 
then a candidate for the presidency and unknown in the west. 
More than 25,000 copies of this number were afterward printed, and 
the leader was copied in all the democratic journals in the Missis- 
sippi valley, and had a strong influence in promoting the success of 
the democratic ticket.

LYMAN DECATUR NORRIS'^; SEVEJTTH GENERATION. 167 

The failing health of his father, with his business interests, called 
Mr. Norris (an only son) back to Tpsilanti, in 1854, where he re- 
mained in business and in the practice of the law until 1871, when 
he removed to Grand Rapids, Mich., which has since been his home, 
21 North Prospect street. 

He has been some in political life. He was a member of the con- 
stitutional convention in 1867. In 1869 he was the democratic can- 
didate for state senator, in Washtenaw county, and introduced the 
practice of joint discussions, challenging his opponent, Hon. J. 
Webster Childs, who accepted. The candidates traveled together, 
and were each other's guest in their respective towns. They were, 
so long as Mr. Childs lived, warm personal friends. Mr. Norris 
was elected senator. He was made chairman of the geological sur- 
vey, and was a member of the judiciary committee, and the commit- 
tee on education. He took an active and prominent part in the 
proceedings of the senate, and subsequent events justified the wis- 
dom of his actions and votes opon many important questions. He 
has been very successful as a lawyer. He is regarded as possess- 
ing scholarly attaiments, a sound legal mind, and a profound knowl- 
edge of the principles of jurisprudence. In 1875 he was the demo- 
cratic, liberal, and reform conventions' candidate for judge of the 
supreme court of Michigan. In 1883 he was appointed one of the 
regents of the University of Michigan. He has the confidence of 
his fellow citizens and is engaged in the active and successful prac- 
tice of his profession, with his son, Mark Norris.

1661a. Lorin Orville Norris^ (1207) [William*, Benjamin^ Jo- 
seph*, Benjamin*, Jonathan^, Nicholas^]. He was born in Ashtield, 
Mass., March 14, 1846. His father died when Mr. Norris was six 
years of age, leaving a widow and three small children, and the snb- 
lect of this sketch was the eldest. His mother taught school in San- 
Dornton, N. H.^ and Haverhill, Mass., after the death of her husband, 
and in 1858, married again and moved to western Massachusetts. 
At the age of ten years he went forth from home to face the stern 
realities of life, and never after that period, except for a short time, 



168 LORIN ORVILLE N0RRIS7; SEVENTH GENERATION. 

did he live at home. He spent some time in Metbuen, and North- 
wood N. H., going to school in the winter season. In 1860 he 
worked for fifty cents a day, hoping to obtain the means for a lib- 
eral education. In March, 1861, he entered the academy at ^hel- 
burne Falls, Mass., where by the most rigid economy, and by work- 
ing out of school hours, and during vacations, he was enabled to 
stay for eighteen months. In October, 1862, he entered the employ 
of the Revere Copper company, Boston, Mass., which continued for 
five years, during which he rose to the position of head bookkeeper. 

Failing health compelled him to relinquish this position, and in 
the spring of 1870 he opened a store for stationery, wall papers, 
fancy dry goods, and small wares, in Methuen, Mass., which he still 
successfully manages in 1892. In this business he has manifested 
the same traits of character exhibited in earlier years, and by dili- 
gence, attention to the details of his occupation, his trade has in- 
creased from year to year. The stem descipline and privations of 
his early life have given him increased appreciation of home and its 
comforts which he enjoys after arriving at middle life, and also, 
sympathy for those, and a willingness to help them, who are 
worthily striving against adverse circumstances and unfortunate 
surroundings. He married, Feb. 9, 1870, Mary Elizabeth, daugh- 
ter of John and Susan Tenney (Kimball) McLaughlin. She was 
born in Salem, N. H., Sept 9, 1846. She has greatly aided her hus- 
band in the struggle of life, and he feels that much is due to her 
worthy efforts. Mr. Norris is an earnest member of the Baptist 
church and says he " would count the efforts of life and successes 
met with as of little value compared with the abiding hope and 
faith in the Lord Jesus Christ," which he firmly accepts as his own. 
Resides in Methuen, Mass.

1684a. Josiah Henry Norris* (1409b) [Welcome^ Taylor*, Sam- 
uel*, Samuel*, Samuel', Moses^ Nicholas^]. He was bom in Boston, 
Mass., May 27, 1881, and about 1832 went with his parents to Sut- 
ton, Vt., where he resided till 1850, except two years spent in learn- 
ing the trade of a blacksmith in Springfield, Mass. In 1850, with 
his parents, he removed to Glens Falls, N. Y., where he engaged 
in business for himself. He was an expert mechanic, and prosperied 
well, having most of the work to do for the numerous lumber mills 
of the place. He enlarged his business, and at the breaking out of 
the war, he had the Islrgest wagon and carriage works in the place. 
In 1862 he enlisted in the war of the Rebellion, and was commis- 
sioned captain by Gov. E. D. Morgan, Aug. 10, 1862, in Co. A, 118th 
regt. N. T. vols. He raised his company of one hundred strong, 
composed of the finest young men of the place,, and the engine com- 
pany, of which he was a member, " Old Defiance No. 1," presented 
him with a sword and sash as he left for the front. 

After serving two years with credit, he was discharged on ac- 
count of severe and dangerous sickness, which prostrated him for 
nearly a year. Then he again engaged in business, and his property 
was burned to the ground. He rebuilt his works larger than ever, 
which were again swept away in the great fire which destroyed the 
business portion of Glens Falls. These repeated reverses somewhat 
discouraged him, and he gathered together the property he had left, 
and removed to the oil regions of Pennsylvania in the spring of 
1866, where he has since lived, and for twenty-six years has been en- 
gaged in the manufacture of oil-well drilling and fishing tools. He 
has won the reputation in the oil regions of being the most expert 
manufacturer of such implements. He has invented, and received 
patents on, some mechanical devices. His sons, Frank H., and Dan- 
iel E. Norris, are associated with him in business. Mr. Norris bears 
his years well. He is an independent republican in politics, and 
was elected the first Burgess of Bradford, !renn. Resides in Tiona, 
Penn. He married, Dec. 31, 1853, Harriet Lucretia, daughter of 
James and Mary (Newton) Buswell, of Glens Falls, N. T. She was 
born in Edinburgh, N. Y., Feb. 12, 1834.
